How can we improve Yahoo Tech?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  2. fix comments section errors

    between comments not seeming to post not being able to view comments etc. it gets annoying especially since any idiot with a modern web browser can look at your code using developer mode.

  5. More up to date and current tech news

    Current tech news site has too few up to date and current tech news articles. I have to go to other sites to get more of the latest tech news. For a tech related company, Yahoo has a very poor tech news section. And get rid of all the pictures, maybe then you will have room to post more of the latest tech news.

  10. Large images are not efficient. Take a lesson from NBCNews and base your layout on the type of reader viewing your webpage.

    Sure, large images which you can flip through are great for tablet readers or those with a mobile device, but for the majority of the desktops without touch screens the design is inefficient. YOU CAN determine the browser that is viewing your webpage and adjust your design based on this. Viewing large images for news is not efficient. NBCNews did the same thing and now a vast majority of people, including myself, no longer read the news there. Check out their Facebook page for the flood of comments based on this design if you need perspective.

  11. Bring back simple summaries.

    I've mostly stopped reading because the tiles make it harder to find relevant articles and slower to load.

  12. Weekly emails with link to latest Pogue articles

    I subscribed to NY Times weekly tech emails and always looked forward to reading the latest Pogue review. Is there a way that I can get updated when there is a new article?

  16. Stop that topstory slideshow

    It is so incredibly annoying... I would love to actually read Yahoo Tech regularly, but everytime i open it, those huge panels slide every few seconds and it is 1) impossible to read those titles 2) super annoying, because they are so huge.

    My solution is to scroll down so the newst stuff is out of screen, and then i can check out other stories.

    If you really really want moving carousel, make it less terrible. Do a cross-dissolve or other less irritating animation.

  17. Choose video quality manually.

    As of now the video automatically adjusts to the internet speed. Would like to set the resolution of the video manually irrespective of what net speed i have. :)

  19. New Tech page - tiles are too big, lack text summary

    If you must use tiles apply some HTML5 smarts. Pulse.com at least has size options. The new flipboard web format combines graphics and text. But the real wave of the future is something like NYT Skimmer where the viewer selects the graphics/text mix and employs horizontal page "scrolling". It will be difficult to trust Yahoo Tech if it can't walk the walk.

  20. Way to much unnecessary graphics.

    Yahoo Tech can be reduced to one page that I look at twice a day or I will have to search for an alternative and not see you at all.
